These are HUGE bulbs, freshly dug, can overwinter in basement in cold climes (do not let bulbs freeze); they produce HUGE, SHOWY leaves (see picture - this is taken from my front door) which will astound your family, friends and visitors. Elephant ears make your garden seem like a tropical rain forest. In the Baltimore region, plant in spring after all danger of frost has passed; dig up in fall. They reproduce rapidly, so if you plant one bulb in loamy soil, you will dig up 2-4 in the fall! They take full sun AND full shade but seem to do best in semi-shade. These are very hardy bulbs; get a jump on spring by potting them indoors and transplanting them after all danger of frost has passed! Did I mention WE SHIP TO YOU! WE ACCEPT PAYPAL!
Colocasia is a genus of 25 or more species of flowering plants in the family Araceae, native to tropical Polynesia and southeastern Asia. Common names include Elephant-ear, Taro, Cocoyam, Dasheen, and Eddoe. Elephant-ear and Cocoyam are also used for some other large-leaved genera in the Araceae, notably Xanthosoma and Caladium. The generic name is derived from the Greek word for Nelumbo nucifera. They are herbaceous perennial plants with a large rhizome on or just below the ground surface. The leaves are large to very large (3 to 4 feet long!) with a sagittate shape. The elephant's ear plant gets its name from the leaves, which are shaped like a large ear or shield.
